Object designed for the installation 'Is this your future?' by Dunne and Raby, 2004. A silver metal bottle with a logo on the front in dark blue, 'Jones Family Hydrogen' with a group of two large and two small shapes resembling skittles, people or bottles. The cap of the bottle is a white flower with a scale at centre with a black hand. A white accompanying label with 'Instructions' in blue text.

'Is this your future' is a twelve-part installation commissioned from Fiona Raby and Tony Dunne for the Energy Gallery at the Science Museum in 2004. The installation imagined three possible scenarios for alternative future energy use: hydrogen, recycled human poo, and animal blood. Each scenario is presented through a photograph of a family using the alternative energy, alongside 2 or 3 objects. The photographs were taken by Jason Evans, the objects were produced or sourced by Dunne & Raby.

This bottle forms part of the hydrogen scenario, in which a little girl earns her pocket money by selling hydrogen. She would use the bottle to collect and then sell the hydrogen.
